On the DLsite page, there are a handful of Q&A’s covering some bits about the game like the story and system. My reading isn’t all that great, but I gather it pretty much just follows the events of the first game, in the familiar visual novel type format. They’ve paid particular attention to facial animation as well as the number of animations overall to improve fluidity of the characters. Also, lip syncing makes its return!
Orie’s classmates that played backseat roles in Tsun☆Dere have made the step up to main characters, and as you might see in some screenshots they are getting some good action. A few new additional characters that have been introduced (so far) include Cross Maria, an oddball student who seems to like Orie, and the new school doctor Kurosaki Reika, who is an old senpai of Haruna’s from school (probably high school though it doesn’t mention specifically). They seemed to have had a close relationship.
Kurosaki Reika, the new school doctor and a close friend of Haruna’s.
She is quite sexy here might I say so myself ^^
There are also a handful of questions that users were able to ask the creators about Tsukiakari; stuff like “what was the most fun/hardest part of creating the new title?”
The Toranoana page basically has most of the information that has been slowly released on Tinklebell’s own page in a convenient single page format. Both pages feature several screenshots; some that have been released on Tinklebell’s page and some that haven’t, though presumably will be in the future. There are more character bios and a couple more screenshots that aren’t found on these pages at the Tinklebell site.
Just about two to three more days for the US folks until the promotional movie is released on Valentine’s Day in Japan! Everybody look forward to it!
